This is my take on the traditional Savon De Marseille soaps which are huge chunk of soap intended to be left on the counter and just rubbed to pick up soap, rather than picking it up and using it the way you would a traditional bar of soap. By law, the Savon de Marseille has to have at least 72% olive oil, so that is what I use as well, with the balance made up of coconut oil. I tell you... there is beauty in simplicity! For the French, this soap is used for everything, from hand washing, to spot removal, to dish washing, etc. You get the picture.
These soaps are a hefty 12 ounces at least and will probably last for years. I now have 2 versions available... the original, called "French Field" and the new soap, called "French Breeze". The two soaps are functionally the same. The only difference is the scent blend and the color of the clay added. French Field Big Block Kitchen Soap
color: light green
scent: essential oil blend of lavender, rosewood, lemon, eucalyptus, litsea cubeba, geranium, and palmarosa French Breeze Big Block Kitchen Soap
scent: essential oil blend of bergamot, eucalyptus, orange, peppermint, and fir needle
Although I sell the soap by itself, I like to put these soaps on a natural stone tile. I originally put rubber "feet" on this tile to protect delicate surfaces, but recently changed to cork to keep it more eco-friendly.
Also, while supplies last, I have off-cuts of soap that are roughly 3x3x1.25 and weigh somewhere between 4.25-6 oz. I will stock them, when I have some on hand.
Tiles with cork "feet" are wrapped in Kraft paper.
Soap cube is packaged in a cardboard box and soap bars are packaged in glassine envelopes.
